JOLIET, IL. (ECWd) –
During today’s hearing on John Norton’s Motion to Vacate a Plenary No Stalking/No Contact Order against him (which according to a police report has broken), a briefing schedule was prepared, with a new court date of July 29, 2020, at 10:30 a.m.
When today’s Order on the briefing schedule and hearing date was being written up, Norton shouted to the Judge, while pointing at us, and told the Judge that we did not have press credentials (even though they were hanging around our necks) and that he (Norton) was scared and wanted a Deputy to escort him to his vehicle.
The Judge told Norton that none of that had anything to do with today’s hearing, but granted his request for an escort to his vehicle.
This is a habit of Norton’s, in his unhinged attempts at looking like a victim, to ask for a police escort to his vehicle after he lies about people in a courtroom. Maybe he thinks it is a game where he can say anything he wants, no matter how false it is.
Time will tell, and hopefully, the justice system will take care of it.
